Question about Washing Machines

Washer Leak Hi I didn't do anything to the washer. I was just putting in a new shutoff valve in the basement and when I turned the water back on it started dripping then. We live in the country and have a lot of iron in our water so is there a valve that may have gotten som particles under it that won't close all the way now. I know when we turned the water back on all kinds of garbage got flushed through the pipes. Thanks

I have a maytag bravos x mct washer. It will not pump cold water the hot water comes out not the cold any ideas?


If your washer doesn't go through the washer rinse cycle, the most likely cause is the water valve. What happens is the water valve will stop letting cold water into the washer; therefore, once the washer gets to rinse it will either stop or not do anything during the whole rinse cycle.
This is because when you selected your water temperature, you selected warm/cold or hot/cold. The hot water came in and you didn't notice any problems. When it got to rinse, the cold water the cold water won't come in. Therefore, the washer does nothing.
To check the water valve, first cut the water off and remove the hoses off the back of the washer. Then one at a time point the hoses inside the washer tub and turn the water back on. If you don't have good water pressure, turn the water back off and remove the strainer that should be in one end of the hose. Inspect the strainer to see if it is stopped up, clean it and reinstall it. Now repeat this test. If you have good water pressure now, reinstall hose and your problem is fixed.
If you still don't have good water pressure, the problem is in your house plumbing and you need to call a plumber. If you had good water pressure the first time you performed the test, the water valve is bad and needs replacing.
TIMER
If your washer doesn't go through the washer rinse cycle the timer may be the problem. Sometimes the timer gets stuck in the middle of the cycle or won't turn at all. If the washer runs, but the timer doesn't turn, the timer is bad and needs replacing.
Do you have anti-flood hoses leading to the machine. If you do there is probably a loose tube in the back causing a small leak. When the hoses detect that water is still flowing after a certain amount of time due to the leak it shuts down and causes the machine to turn off during the rinse/spin cycle
By the way my advice is free cuz God is good!

How to change the water inlet valve?


Disconnect the electicity. Shutoff your water shutoff valves. Disconnect the two hoses leading to the valve noting which hose is hot and which is cold. Unscrew the access plate. Unscrew the screw holding the valve in place. Lift it slightly so you can push it out. Make note of the electric connections to the two solenoids. Disconnect them. Disconnect the hose ring with hose ring pliers if you are lucky enough to have them or use pliers and good luck. It your push it down below the hose it is easier to get the hose off. Wiggle the hose carefully so you don't break it. I found it useful to put the valve back in the resting place of the metal frame to be able to get a better grasp on it. Take the new part and instead of reinstalling the hose with the old hose ring get an automotive hose ring that you can screw on with a socket wrench. Reconnect all the electric connections. Put the valve back in the metal frame and screw it in and the metal plate. Reconnect the hoses securely and slowly turn the water back on making sure it doesn't leak. Plug back in and you should be in business.

Leak well after completion of wash cycle - Neptune Front Loader


peace,
ngafm1 at your service,

Water sprayed out of ( the leaky washers in the hot water shut off valve which need to be replaced.
They are inside all valves and wear out in time from normal use!
Or you can have a bad solder joint at the junction between the hot water shut off valve or the the pipe joint!
these washers in any shutoff valve can leak intermittently till they get worse and then leak all the time!
you should be able to stand there and watch it as you open and close the shut off valve again and again , and then stay there and watch it start leaking!
Or when you are opening it and closing the valve 4 times straight you may feel a trickle of water from the valve stem!!!!
This means washers in the valve stem need to be replaced!!!
Get a new plumber !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm no plumber but I do under stand this!

Kenmore Elite HE4T Washing Machine Diagnostic Test Didn't complete and clothes aren't spun as dry as in the past I have a Kenmore Elite HE4T washing machine and I noticed that recently it isn't getting all of the clothes completely dry from the final spin cycle. Thus, the dryer has to run through two cycles to get the clothes dry. I did a bunch of research and made sure there weren't any kinks or blockages in the drain lines; and opened up the bottom of the washer and cleaned out the drain cleanout. I found a few pennies, but everything seemed to be working ok. I ran a load and had the bottom open so that I could make sure the motor, drain and belt were all working properly. The drain does get the water out of the washer, so the clothes aren't sitting in water, they just don't seem to be spun as fast or as long as they used to. I always put it on the "extra high" spin setting no matter which type of load I run. So, I found a way to run the diagnostic test on the washer and it went through C0-C5 (the agitation step) and all worked great, until it wouldn't come out of C5 after at least 10 minutes and go thru C6-C8. I had to cancel the diagnostic test and hit the "drain and spin" button to get all of the water back out of the washer. BTW, the "drain and spin" seems to get the clothes a bit drier than when I have it run through the "normal" cycle with the "extra high" spin. If anyone has any other thoughts, I would really appreciate it. This unit is in a small space with the dryer attached so to take it out and do repairs is a pretty big hassle. It has had a new control board and two new fill valves in the 10+ years that I have owned it. Questions I have: 1.should I remove the entire drain pump to make sure there isn't anything lodged in it? 2. could it be the belt slipping slightly and keeping the spin from reaching its 1200 RPMs? 3. Anything else I may be missing???
